Web Site Publisher
FAQ: Why does Web Site Publisher have an expiry date?
Note: As of version 2.0.3 (April 2008) the expiry date has been removed.
The tool has an expiry date because this is a simple way of ensuring that you will (eventually) download newer versions of the tool. There is currently no mechanism for letting users know when newer versions of the tool become available, other than via the expiry date. Newer versions will incorporate new functionality and bug fixes.
Release versions of the tool generally have expiry dates of at least a year ahead of the date of issue of the software. A newer version will become available at least a month before the expiry of the current (if not much sooner).
It is on the development plan to introduce a mechanism to notify users when an update is available and when this feature is implemented the expiry date will be removed.
